About

What do James Bond, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Incredibles have in common?

Artist Robert McGinnis has painted some of the most iconic movie posters ever imagined, and now you can see how he creates his infamous illustrations using classic painting techniques—and it all begins with a broken egg.

In the film Robert McGinnis Sessions, you will be able to see McGinnis demonstrate his legendary egg tempera and powered paint process in detail. Beginning with his photo session of a semi-nude model to his creation of early drawings McGinnis explains the process as he renders the painting to completion.

This DVD project of McGinnis’ was filmed over the course of two days in the artist’s studio in 1996. Funding for this Kickstarter project will be used to assemble all of the raw video together just as it happened and re-master the original SD video camera footage into a cleaner, sharper video presentation, and pay for additional production costs such as a cool retro original music score and DVD mastering costs. We will post updates and art images on a continuing  basis with photos and video teaser clips and post shout outs to our wonderful backers! This is project is truly a labor of love as I believe all fans of great illustration art will learn and enjoy seeing this remarkable artist create art!

The DVD extras will include an interview with Iron Man 3 director Shane Black that was filmed on the set of Black’s directorial debut movie, Kiss, Kiss Bang Bang. McGinnis created the original poster art for Black’s film as well as original paperback artwork for several prop books read by one of the film’s characters. Extras will also include new 1080 HD interviews to be filmed with artists and art historians discussing McGinnis’ iconic James Bond art from the 1960’s.

Risks and challenges

All of the important video footage for the project was previously filmed and has been stored and is ready to be assembled. New interviews are being scheduled and all participants have committed themselves to the project as they love to speak more about McGinnis than about their own work and are excited to present their own tributes McGinnis. All of the artwork created by McGinnis has been cleared for usage by McGinnis.
